The Stephenville boys soccer team posted their fifth consecutive District 4-4A victory Tuesday at Wylie, keeping their chances alive for a district title — if they get some help.
Coach Taylor Smith’s Yellow Jackets downed district-leading Abilene Wylie 1-0 Tuesday on the road, moving up to 6-2 in district and 15-5 overall.
Kevin Martinez provided the lone goal for Stephenville, getting an assist from J.J. Saldana about five minutes into the second half.
The Jackets were to wrap up the final district game last night (Friday) at home against Brownwood. If they win that game, they could end up in a three-way tie for the district title. In that case, the top three playoff seeds from the district, either SHS, Wylie or Mineral Wells — would be determined by goals against in district play.
If Wylie beats Mineral Wells, the Jackets would be the second-place team.
Because there are only four teams in the district, all four teams will make the playoffs.
“We are playing strong right now,” Smith stated. “We started district injured and slow but we have won our last five games and (are) playing at a high level and should be pretty healthy for the playoffs. I like where we are at, and (are) poised to make a run.”
